[Pro] changing the auto-response message on a form

Hello, I’ve created a very basic registration form on my site using the PHP action, which works ok as far as getting a name and email address is concerned for our records.

But what I want to do, when they register, is automatically send out a reply with a link on it to a hidden page on the website. We want to give a free chapter per week of a book out to those who register as a reward :slight_smile:

Is there anyway of doing this automatically or am I just going to have to email the link to each person?

Why not just redirect them to a success page that has your link on it.

The PHPFF action cannot do an autoreply on its own - you would need to tweak it.

You can’t do that with the PHP Feedback Form Action, but it’s not that hard to hand-code. If you want to learn how, let us know. (Short form: you use the Action to create the PHP handler script, and then edit it to add the auto-reply.)

DeltaDave - thank you so much - I will just put the link on the page. Doh! I just didn’t think of it, I’ve been faffing around with auto-responses on my emails for about two hours.

Walter - thank you very much for replying - I’ve never done hand-coding (or any coding that wasn’t automatically done for me) so I will go the simple route.

easiForm has an auto reponse option, it’s not free ($20 for as many forms as you need *per domain), it uses ioncube loaders so your server would need to be ioncube friendly (most are… even Go Daddy is).

You can try it out for free, if it is what you need then you just need to proceed to purchase the license file that removes the alert.

The above example does not use a table but the ‘In depth PDF’ at this link does:

I recomend you use a table layout as used for the PDF, although it is quite long it covers most things involving form elements in Freeway.
